When traveling on the busy streets of Rhode Island as a pedestrian you are traveling the same streets as cars, motorcycles, buses, taxicabs and bicyclists
. There are real risks just going for a walk, especially on busy roadways and when crossing streets. It's not uncommon for motorists to ignore the pedestrian right of way at cross walks, and traffic lights.
With no real protection when struck by a car, pedestrians often incur very severe injuries in any accident with another motorized moving object. These could range from broken bones, spine injuries, brain injuries, skin burns up to and including death.
When you're injured in a pedestrian accident property damage is not normally part of the issue. The severe bodily injuries that result in lost wages, loss of function, current and future medical and rehabilitative costs are all taken into consideration when we file a legal claim on your behalf.
Its our role as your legal advocate to recover the costs of medical bills and wages. We also take into consideration how and when you can return to work, and in what capacity, and also factor in your quality of life after the accident.
